We rent a car
Having nothing else to do but wait for the technician to come back from his vacation on Tuesday we rent a car and yesterday we drove around in the closest surroundings – see map.
We visited the village of Vertralla – the two first photos. Then we continued to Montefiascone and had a beautiful view over the Lake of Bolsena. The very special city of Orvieto was our next stop lying on the top of a mountain. The beautiful dome is very famous – we learnt.
Today – Sunday – we drove to Rome and visited all the famous places – Colosseum, Monument to Victor Emmanuel II, Fontana di Trevi, the Vatican and the Piazza di Spagna – Spanish Stairs. Sometimes we had to check where we were – also when having a very nice Italian lunch!
Now we are back on “Gladan”. We face another “lacy” day tomorrow but then we will have the technician working hard on Tuesday enable us to leave Civitavecchia….. Nice town but now we want to SAIL!
